Business Cards - ID cards and more

 These are ID, club, store, gas and other cards that I've had over the years or that were donated to me. My original page is going to take awhile to rebuild, but here are photos of them for now, with my comments. This was from around 2013. I'm sorry that they're so small! You can zoom in to see them.

Almond Flour Banana Bread

 

I made this recipe this week...absolutely delicious! Even though it's made with almond flour, it's not that low carb because of the bananas, and because of the sugar. You can substitute Splenda or your favorite sweetener for the sugar. I made it with three bananas instead of two because they're small. I'm only going to eat one small piece at a time, so the carb count is not too bad. It's hard, though, because this is really delicious. It's dog-friendly, too! It's also gluten-free and dairy-free.

My Business Card Collection

Suzanne Lanoue April 2024

I've been collecting business cards since I was about 10, when I picked one up while visiting in Tijuana with my dad.  I kept it because I liked a hat at this one shop, but my dad didn't want to buy it.  I hoped to go back and buy it some day (I never did!).  Then I wanted to collect cards to show them in San Diego County Fair in San Diego, where they have many hobby shows (I never did that, either!).  I didn't know there were other collectors out there until the 80's, when I worked with a guy in NY who said he collected them (or used to, I think).  I saw other card collectors later at our county fair, too.  Then I started collecting more actively when I found the IBCC and joined the club and mailing list (which is now on Facebook).  I was trading with 5-6 people regularly, but I haven't had time for that, for quite a while now.  I have more cards than I can display or go through, but I hope to get them organized sometime.   ~Suzanne

 

SEND ME CARDS!

Please feel free to send me cards you don't want at: P.O. Box 882 Magnolia, AR 71754  However, I do not have time for new traders, sorry!  (Please visit IBCC as noted above to find traders.) If you send me cards through the mail, I might not reply for a very long time or send you any cards.  If you want me to send you money in return for postage, I can do that, but you must let me know in your email or letter. NOTE: I will be moving in mid-June, 2024 so you might want to wait to send cards until after that, when I get a new P.O. Box and will post it here. I can't guarantee that I will receive your cards in a timely fashion (although I will be getting mail forwarded to the new box).

My Collection

This picture above was from when we lived in Lubbock (97-01) - I was sorting them on our small table. I have way more than will fit into this picture.  I sort them whenever I have a little time, using photo boxes.  When I get all of them sorted into categories, I will attempt to alphabetize them.  Then I will enter the data into a spreadsheet in the computer and possibly scan them in as well. I'm sure I will find MANY duplicates when I alphabetize them. I have thousands now and not much free time for sorting, so it will take quite a while.

Here's what the cards look like now in my closets in Arkansas.  I have a lot more boxes in another room, but they're packed up now, since we're moving soon.

Here are cards I've had made up for myself!

Fabio is looking to trade or buy business cards. He lives in Italy and his English is not that great. Please email me by clicking on his name if you are interested.  You can use Google Translate to translate to Italian if that will help.  BTW I do not know Fabio, so please do not involve me in any trade disputes or questions. I haven't heard from him, so I have no idea if this is still his email address.

I had a very bad experience in the past with VistaPrint! Fair warning.  I have ordered cheap cards from them in the past, including magnetic cards--great deals!  However, I don't use them any more because they gave my credit card information to one of their ad companies, without my permission, and they then charged me for something I did not agree to, and VistaPrint did not help me out at all.  They continued to spam me both through email and snail mail for years, even though I repeatedly asked them not to.😠
